Overall productive and enjoyable cultural experience
Instructor/Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Rae Edzo, NWTSeptember 9, 2014
-on-site housing, great work site, most students energetic and willing to learn
-as a teacher, you get back what you put out
-sometimes a new face, especially male can overwhelm with their power short term (in northern cultures)
-co-workers were supportive and energetic
-as an outsider, the hardest part of the job was being accepted into the community
-another very difficult aspect of the job was that one of my students felt her sister should be in my position and she harassed me throughout the year; fortunately, she did not have a lot of influence on other students
-my favorite part of the job was the rate of advancement; some students started at a Grade 2 level and advanced to a Grade 9 level.
-none of my students tested above a Grade 9 level, but most were ready to start the Teachers Education Program by the end of the year
Pros
great learning experience
Cons
the drive to the community which was 100 kilometers away

Community Adult Educator (Former Employee) –  Yellowknife, NTNovember 5, 2013
I was a community adult educator for Aurora College. I managed a community learning centre in a remote aboriginal community. Management and colleagues were very approachable, encouraging and helpful. As community adult educator, it was important to be an ambassador of the college, to be a role model. and set an example of appropriate behaviour. It was very important to be accepted and to be involved in the community.
Pros
work on your own, allowed to use your own judgement, make decisions, use your creativiity knowing that management has confidence in you.
Cons
isolation, loneliness; you must like the outdoors, have activities and/or hobbies that keep you stimulated.
